I have photographied these Masterwort and Daisy at 1700m on the slope of Tournette over Annecy lake...

I hope you like these nice wild flowers...


Common name : Masterwort. Scientific name : Astrantia major. Family : Umbelliferae.

The name Astrantia, as with Asters, alludes to the blooms' star-like presentation.
It is a wild flower in mountain from 600m to 2000m, but now you can found it in gardens...


Canon Ixus 400 in mode : macro-auto. No flash, no tripod.
Slightly cropped and resized for TN.

Volvimos a las hermosas flores por un momento.
Y con una excelente entrega, por su colorido, su composicion y por un atinado DOF y encuadre.

Nous sommes retournés aux belles fleurs pour un moment. Et avec une livraison excellente, par son coloré, sa composition et par un judicieux DOF et encadrez.

Nice capture Christian. The OOF BG adds a nice touch.

Christian, I like the "impact" this one has. Very nicely composed with balance that includes both land & sky very well. Great detail & DOF on your group. The shadow & light cascade is complimentary also. P.S. Wife says it's just "Gorgeous"!!!

This is absolutely beautiful. What a great photo. Congratlations.

Excellent image, Christian. Compo, sharpness, colour and DOF perfect.

I love this, composition is excelent, the blue of the skies behind together with the green adds a lot to the picture.
Flowers are sharp.
